Hi. I'm using currently:
i5 6600k 4.5GHz
z170-a
gtx 1060 6gb sc ( single fan! ) with +50 / +200

I'm using 2x 1080p monitors, but I want to upgrade it all.

Not at once, I need to spread it all, and that's with new AMD Ryzen, around June / July if you go by the rumors...

So long story short, I will be getting some of those new Ryzens, I want new monitor too.

In the market for best bang for the buck kind of a deal for 1440p with 144Hz, around 27"

I need a better GPU for that to play games, so... should I wait for NAVI, to see what's on the offer?

I could probably go as high ( price wise ) as 2070.

Would NAVI be better than 2070? Thats with or withouth RTX cores...

My understanding is that I would need at least 2070 to run games at 1440p with high refresh rate, right?

You don't really need any upgrades to the system outside of the video card for 1440 at higher refresh rates.

Get the monitor and see how your system runs on it as is. If you feel the video card is not good enough, then look into another one.
